Poetry. On a journey through mountains both actual and symbolic, a woman meditates on selfhood, family interactions, yearning, pain, and death in the midst of the ongoing beauty of the finite world. "A book of a woman's life-journey written with the intensities and intimacies of a haunted mindfulness, this allegorical trek seeks to name the essential amid the muliplying circumstances of selfhood, family intersections, pain, yearning and finite time. A poignant book of all the places and emotions that 'leaving we will never leave.'"--Rachel Blau Duplessis.
